Today is election day here in Scotland. Voter turn out is predicted to be higher than normal which is a good thing so GET OUT AND VOTE! I’ve never really understood the apathy that surrounds the political process here. It seems that millions of people will pay £1 to vote on who should play Joseph in Lloyd Weber’s new production but people can’t be bothered to go vote for the people who will decide how their children are educated and what health care they get. We have a system of proportional representation in both the elections for Parliament and for our local councils so politics in Scotland is more representative than it has ever been.
This could be an interesting day in the political life of Scotland with polls predicting an SNP (who want Scotland to have a referendum on independence from England) victory by just a few seats… I’ll keep you posted or read the feed on the RIGHT from the BBC Election coverage. But VOTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
